Hengistbury is a family favourite. Go fly a kite. Go for a long walk. Go for a dip. Sit and relax watching the boats as they sail on the breeze. An historical place where evidence of the iron and bronze ages have been discovered.

Walking for exercise stunning scenery, even in the winter. There is a pay car park at the entrance or free along the main road. If you run out of steam or it rains there is a Land train to take you back!
